“What do you suggest are the key issues which need to be considered to make cities better to live in for the future?”
The 21st century is by far the most productive era of all time. It is the age where man meets technology, where people change from using analog mechanical to digital computing. It is also the age where the industry had its revolution. This makes major countries and cities all over the world reach its peak. With the constant increasing number of human population and the never expanding land, the human population growth becomes higher and overpopulated.
If the increase of the human population goes on it could be a disaster. Given that Earth is in limited size, population growth will have to come to a close at some point. The only questions are when and how population growth will cease. Population growth is controlled at two points in the human life cycle. One is before birth, by artificial birth control and abortion. The other is after birth, by war, starvation, murder and other horrors beyond anyone’s imagination. And that what makes cities reasonably dangerous to live in.
The key issues which need to be considered to make cities better to live in for the future are mainly the uneven human population distribution and city planning. The three main factors that affect the scale of the human population distribution are the location of your home, workplace, and the transportation that connects both places. The urban planning of a certain city has a big impact on the distribution of human population. There are two examples of urban planning. First, in assumption the workplace takes place in the middle of the city and the citizens live surrounding the city by living in the suburbs. Second, citizens live and work in the city.
As we become adults, we come across the broad decision of choosing a place we can call home. Many factors need to be taken into consideration other than just finding a place comforting. Some basic but important factors a person must consider are job opportunities, access to services, and transportation. A big city like New York City meets all important factors and offers a greater life experience ...
In best guess of the first example, suppose we have suburbs encircling the city. For example, we have Jabodetabek. It stands for Jakarta, the city and Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi is the outer edge. Citizens take public transportations to work on a daily basis. But traffic congestion seems inevitable even if we try taking different routes or taking off early from home. By mass producing comfortable and affordable public transportations and creating efficient feeds into the stations and stops of transport, citizens need not to ride a car dependently so it would make the city less crowded and roads less traffic. Also, opening new routes and roads, it will even out the number of vehicles that have been going through heavy flowing traffic. Building fly-overs, under-passes, and highways to interconnect workplaces can also spread the citizens’ population.
The second scenario is if citizens live and work in the city. The example is Bandung. If the workplace and home is centralized, therefore the population is centralized as well. With the massive number of citizens and the already crowded city, it is hard for citizens to mobilize. By using the vertical housing plan not only the citizens can live near their workplace, but it also evens the ratio of the human population density, such as building apartments, hotels, and condos. Having a home and a workplace in a close distance provides you the option to either walk or take a public transport, which is not difficult to find. Job vacancies not only does it apply in the city itself, but also outside the city, even the country. Government sends qualified citizens to transmigrate to inhabited lands to less populous areas of the country to reduce overpopulation and poverty. Transmigration also gives the involved moving citizen a chance to utilize natural resources that has been provided by the local environment.
Miami is considered the largest city in the state of Florida. Many tourist articles describe this city as a unique city of contrasts, contradictions, and extremes. Currently, the city of Miami is home for many celebrities, entertainers, athletes, retired families and upcoming tourist and immigrants who migrated to this tourist center of a city. Unfortunately, the city also has a negative side; ...
To make a city comfortable to live in, the main concern is to spread the human population evenly on Earth and to benefit from our natural resources properly. Because when we create a peaceful atmosphere and we ourselves not misusing it, we create a home. A place where people can fulfill their needs easily, and that is the city we want to live in. People all over the world yearn for their own secure place to call home. The place where you can point and just say, “Yes, that’s my home”. Place where you can spend you’re the rest of your life without any creases on your forehead or without you massaging your temples. In lots of aspects like economy, social, and housing, it affects the level of comfort. It doesn’t have to be comfortable in general, and it doesn’t have to be empty or not crowded either. Barring the mass of citizens doesn’t clash and moves together in motion and obeying the set of laws that the country gave them, it will be well structured and no doubt better for the future.
